Sharing PowerApps

I developed an app based on an Excel Sheet. I would like to share this with select individuals. They will not be writing to the Sheet - just viewing the data.

Currently I have to share the App and the Excel Sheet. So they get 2 emails indicating that I have shared these with them.

Is there a way to share the App without explicitly sharing the datasource? Can I turn on a switch that grants them view access to the data without them being aware?

If they will be viewing data in the app that comes from the Excel sheet then you will have to share both the app and the Excel file.  There is no other way.  But if they will only be viewing the data then they only need view access to the Excel sheet.

Thank you. Is there a solution where I will not have to explicitly share the data source - just share the app. A lot of my users are not tech-savvy - and an extra share - and an email notification causes a fair bit of confusion. Thanks.
